  • Bonner students spend more than 80% of the program engaged in community service, and the effectiveness of this work and experience is mostly related to the strength of the community partnerships.
    Every Bonner Scholar is involved in more than 1,800 hours of community service throughout their undergraduate years;
    Every Bonner Leader is similarly involved in 300 hours of service during any school year or summer, for at least two years, in addition to other service performed outside the Bonner Program.
    Core of the Bonner Program

  • Student View:

    EXPECTATION /EXPLORATION:
    Trying to figure out their passions and interests, what is this program about?
    Getting to know the community
    Example: Tutoring; do they like working with children

    EXPERIENCE:
    Been there a year; received some training and experience tutoring, beginning to help coordinate other volunteers, special service events
    Sense of belonging to the program, the organization, “my kids,” “my site”
    Attend meetings; community partner really views them as reliable,

    EXAMPLE:
    Tutoring, helping manage volunteers, write their own curriculum

    EXPERTISE: Decided to become education major; curriculum-approved by the state, discussing educational policy, attending staff meetings, treated more like a staff member than a volunteer, grant writing


  • Previously discussed, community partnership model.
    Now going into more detail of how we can take our partnerships to the next level.
    How we can move a relationship from the occasional volunteer or regular volunteer to site based teams, collaborative problem solving




























  • Recommendations:
    Have time set aside; build this into program expectations
    Introduce Bonner Program structure; Bonner volunteers can commit to a longer time frame and higher level work
    Introduce the developmental model
    Provide a binder or written materials
    Set out communication expectations
    Talk about appropriate and inappropriate service projects
